Do you watch Shark Tank? That is one of my “guilty pleasure” television shows. My husband thinks it’s boring, but he’ll watch it because he knows I find it entertaining. Some of the products are so off-beat whereas others are truly genius. You just never know what the next big thing will be.
I’ve also reviewed a few products over the years that were featured on Shark Tank. One of which was Tipsy Elves.
Not too long ago I saw the episode where Boost Oxygen appeared. The brand worked out a million dollar deal with Mr. Wonderful himself, Kevin O’Leary. I was very impressed by not only the huge deal, but also by the product. It seemed very interesting to me.
Boost Oxygen is 95% pure Aviators Breathing Oxygen, in a lightweight, portable, easy to use can.
Did you know that every cell in your body is designed to burn oxygen–it’s the basic fuel for cell metabolism. Cut back on oxygen and all of those cellular processes become sluggish… you start to feel fatigued or short of breath. If you are a jogger/runner, I’m sure you know what I mean. You can also experience shortness of breath hiking to high elevations.
Less oxygen equates to cells losing the energy they need to repair DNA. Your immune system begins to weaken. Your risk of becoming sick or contracting disease escalates. We NEED oxygen. There is no doubt about that.
I was sent some Boost Oxygen cans to review.
I am not a runner and I don’t hike up high elevations, but I was curious about Boost. Pure Oxygen in a can? Come one… you know you are just as intrigued as I was.
As per the brand;
Boost Oxygen manufactures portable, light-weight, oxygen canisters for use in sports, fitness, health and wellness, high altitude, hangovers and fatigue.
Boost Oxygen is 95% Pure Aviator’s Breathing Oxygen compressed into 3 convenient size aluminum canisters for any non-Medical use. Our supplemental Oxygen is available in aroma-less Natural (no aromatherapy added), Peppermint, Menthol-Eucalyptus, Pink Grapefruit and our new Organic Rosemary ‘Think Tank’ product.
For Pocket Size canisters, remove tamper-evident plastic and remove cap. Place up to mouth, press button firmly and inhale. For Large and Medium size canisters, place mask under nose and over mouth. Press trigger down to activate flow. Breath in through the mouth.
Boost Oxygen is pressure filled only into the can (sort of like a tire). No aerosols or propellants are used. As the can depletes, the pressure of the oxygen flow from the can will also deplete until finally empty. When the oxygen no longer flows, the can is empty.
Interestingly enough, Boost Oxygen is also offered in different scents; Peppermint, Pink Grapefruit, Menthol-Eucalyptus and Natural (no scent).
I received three cans of Boost Oxygen – Small, Medium and Large.
The small bottle features a inhaler piece that you put in your mouth to inhale the oxygen. It looks a lot like an inhaler that people with asthma use.
The medium and large cans feature small mouth pieces that you place over your mouth to inhale the oxygen.
Boost Oxygen is not intended to treat medical conditions. It’s meant for recreational use.
This video by Boost Oxygen explains the product in more detail, as well as how to use it.
I’m not an athlete, and I don’t visit high elevations. But I was still curious about Boost Oxygen.
Honestly, you don’t really taste or notice anything weird when you use the product.
Boost Oxygen is easy enough to use. Initially my kids thought it was very funny when I placed the Boost Oxygen mask on my mouth take a few breaths. It does look strange.
I haven’t really noticed too much of a difference, but I will say that the Menthol-Eucalyptus scent does perk me up when I use it. I keep Boost Oxygen on my desk and for those occasions when I am feeling sluggish, I’ll grab the can, take a few breaths and it does seem to perk me up. I think the scent might have a lot to do with that. You can smell it, but you don’t really taste it.
I was also sent a can called Think Tank. It’s scented with Rosemary. As per the brand;
Rosemary oil has been used for centuries as aromatherapy for cognitive support. From the scholars of ancient Greece to the plays of Shakespeare to current aromatherapy infusers, Rosemary appears time and again. Modern studies have found that Rosemary aroma can increase short term memory up to 75%. We combined this traditional herb with 95% pure oxygen for the good of your brain. Other independent studies have shown that improved oxygen intake can have incredible benefits such as enhanced mood, memory, energy levels, and reaction time. Combining the Rosemary aroma and Pure Oxygen combines the two most effective, all natural inhalable cognitive supporters.
Just like with the Menthol-Eucalyptus, the Rosemary also perks me up. I’m not really sure if it effects my short term memory. What it does it perk me up and helps me feel less sluggish and able to get blog work done (which is why I keep it on my desk).
I think it’s also important that we stop and take some deep breaths from time to time. Breathing (deep breaths) can help you to release stress, regain calmness and peacefulness. I try to practice deep breathing from time to time (when I stop and think about it).
I’m not really sure if this product helps out athletes and people who are in high elevations, but for me, the scented products do seem to be helping me.
